Great service and the food was delicious. We got the chicken Marsala , chicken saltomboca, and Fri Diavolo. Complements to the cooks. One of the best we’ve all had.

Completely ignored after 30 minutes of sitting at our table for our birthday reservation. Servers and staff were standing outside talking. We ended up leaving and eating across the street.

Usually we have a great experience here, but this time was slightly less than expected. Food quality seemed a little off and they had absolutely no desserts for my daughter’s birthday. Not our best time here

Had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation to be seated, and took forever for them to take our order and bring food, but the ambiance on the patio and food were great, so who cares?

Food was excellent - however the service was poor at best. Had to ask numerous times for basics, more drinks etc.

We were seated in a moist and smelly basement. Food was 7.5/10, service was 8/10. I’m sure the experience would have been a bit better if we weren’t seated in the basement.

Excellent choice off the main drag of North End. Pastas were amazing. Ambience is authentic. Service was great. Try to sit by the bar and pizza oven. It was non stop action!

Would avoid at all costs unless you are eating outside. The pasta was decent and the pizza was edible but not enjoyable. The place is old and run down and we sat in the basement that was damp, old, smelly and so loud! Also the service was the worst I have experienced in the past couple years

The day before Boston opening up 50/50 our restaurant was hopping .
Our Server “Kate” was amazing!!! She told us “this is her 1st night” I loved her right off..... Everyone should do customer service once.
The food was so good!!

We’ve been here twice before and will be back! The food is amazing! the Lobster Ravioli was everyone’s fav this trip! The service wasn’t as good as usual but I think that may have been due to the larger (thank goodness) crowds as the city started opening back up after Covid . I was disappointed that we had reservations for outdoor dining, but were seated indoors across from the kitchen. We had family visiting and this made any conversation with our group of 6 difficult. However, as I said before, we do enjoy the restaurant and will be back again!

We went to Benevento’s for our grandson’s 10th birthday after spending the day exploring Boston. The food was delicious and the service was quick and friendly! The waitress brought a piece of cake for my grandson and he loved it!

We always have an awesome experience when we come to your establishment but I understand with the pandemic it’s difficult. Our waitress Geraldine was awesome but displayed somewhat of an attitude when we asked if we could change the noodles of the shrimp scampi and I was disappointed when we didn’t our shot glasses of limoncello.

Also the person that clears the tables kept picking up my plate without asking if I was finished, this was done twice. I felt like I was being rushed.

But overall it was still a Beautiful experience and my Girlfriend loved the cake you serviced us.

Thank you for making her Birthday special!!!!


Thank you

We had a birthday dinner for a friend. Cake and lemon cello after dinner liquor was sent to our table. They were very busy and still served both of our tables quickly and at the same time. There is something to please everyone on their menu. The food was fabulous. They are a class act.

My daughter and went to Boston this weekend to get away for some much needed R&R. This restaurant was just what we needed. Not only was the food amazing, but the service, hospitality and kindness of everyone made our trip one that we will never forget. If you are fortunate enough to eat here and have the pleasure of seeing Joe, you are in luck!

Another fantastic meal and fantastic service. I took my six-year-old granddaughter there on Saturday night and for the first time she had lobster ravioli and she loved it. Although in full disclosure I did not tell her there was lobster in it until after she ate it.

Parking was a nightmare to figure out. It would have been beneficial to have instructions on Haymarket Garage on their Open Table listing. Once we figured this out and walked to restaurant the meal was delicious.
